So, my good buddy Kat Coble
questioned my geek pedigree yesterday, not on her blog but on the granddaddy of middle Tennessee blogs, Nashville is Talking
Apparently, my lack of desire to see Pirates 2
means I'm not up to snuff when it comes to being a geek...
To that, I must say, "Nay, nay."
I say this based on my years of faithful, almost slavish devotion to a little show called Doctor Who
. To paraphrase a popular song, "I liked Dr Who
when Dr Who
wasn't cool." (Stop right there Barry...you cannot comment anything about it not being cool now...). Oh sure, it's totally cool now when you've got armies of Daleks and Cybermen fighting each other in the series two finale (speaking of which....how cool was it that they didn't drop the ball on this one, cause it totally could have been a jump the shark momnet). But I remember back in the dark times when the outlook for new Dr Who
was pretty darn bleak and people just looked at you funny if you said you liked the show....
OK, they still kind of do, but at least now they've HEARD of it again.
Anyway, I feel that my geek status is fully in tact, despite not really being all the excited about Pirates 2.
And don't make me start a count-down to the new episodes of Battlestar Galactica
to prove it....
